The place is overcrowded and dirty . The architecture is disappointing. Lots of shops selling bangles saris etc in the area . The auto rickshaw is also very expensive as well there-need to haggle with price .

Very unique experience. It’s incredible to see the building standing. The walk up and down the stairs is steep but well worth it A must visit in Hyderabad

Well worth visiting if in the area. The guide we had was excellent and the price paid to get In was reasonable. I would take a first time visitor to Hyderabad there, lots of history and the nearby markets are fun!

Such a busy and bustling area, full of food and shops. Everyone is on a hustle here so just be a bit vigilant otherwise it’s a must visit when in Hyderabad.

This place is more good to see now after the traffic thoroughfare is removed and is made only for public to walk around. The promenade in front that leads to Charminar is amazing with pearl shops and age old architecture.

Fantastic site, right in the middle of Hyderabd. Bangle market is adjacent, people are out enjoying life - go right before dusk - locals are out and it is a festive/busy environment. Pay the few bucks for the entrance into the building!

Hyderabad’s most iconic architectural delight,
Charminar is beyond just a popular
monument. It’s the
nucleus of the busiest and most vibrant lanes of the
Old City
studded with shops selling bangles and
pearls. It can be too crowded and overwhelming, but to
every tourist’s delight, the gems and hidden treasures
